Spring cleaning your floor
Published: April 12, 2012
Spring is upon us here in Indianapolis – the time of year you clean out those cobwebs in Carmel, get rid of the dust bunnies in Avon and use a little extra elbow grease in Fishers. Yes, we’re talking spring cleaning and as you roll up your sleeves, we thought you might appreciate a few tips on how to keep your floors looking like new.
We recommend that you have your carpets cleaned every 12-18 months and spring is one of the most popular times of year for carpet cleaning. It’s worth spending a bit of extra money to have them professionally cleaned using hot water extraction. Many home cleaners will leave a soap residue on the carpet which will only attract more dirt later on. Learn more about maintaining your carpet.
Regular sweeping or dust mopping is key to maintaining your hardwood floor. If your floor needs a little more TLC, this is the time of year to use a mild cleaning solution designed for hardwood floors. Regular floor cleaners (Murphy’s Oil Soap, Old English etc) should not be used often because over time they will damage the finish of your hardwood. Stop by our showroom and ask about cleaners specifically designed to clean scuff marks or stains on your hardwood. Learn more about cleaning your hardwood.
Tile is one of the easiest types of flooring to clean. A damp mop and some floor cleaner will do wonders on your tile floor. Now is a good time to check out your grout. If it is stained you’ll need to get down on your knees and do a little extra scrubbing to restore its natural color. We have specialized tile and grout cleaners to help do the job.

A good quality area rug is designed to last for years and years. Over time, however, you may find some worn spots or stains that you can’t remove on your own. That’s when it’s time for Kermans’ expert rug cleaning services.
